Libby McLaren and Celia Ramsay, the creators of Carmony: Learn to Sing Harmony While You Drive, will teach you the basics of singing harmony by ear. They use familiar songs you may already know in an informative and entertaining two-hour workshop. All voices welcome!
Celia Ramsay
Celia Ramsay has been singing all her life, and is known for her jazz-flavored original songs, and for singing traditional Scottish music. A versatile vocalist, she coaches hesitant singers to find their own voice at Lark Camp in Mendocino, and in project-based private lessons at her home studio. She is a well-liked teacher and performs regularly around Berkeley – including the Freight – with a variety of fine local musicians.
Libby McLaren
Libby McLaren grew up in Berkeley with a banjo-playing dad, a mom who always sang, and siblings who led the way with piano lessons, songwriting, and performing. In 1977, she was a founding member of the band NightFlyte. She and the band moved to NYC, where she pursued many different musical ventures that included singing with the Joy Askew Band, and singing harmonies and playing piano for the Roches. While on tour in California in 1987, she met Robin Flower, and the two have been performing as Flower and McLaren ever since. In addition to performing, Libby teaches piano, accordion, and vocal music in the Bay Area.

In 2012, Celia Ramsay began taking piano lessons with Libby McLaren, and over those years, they discussed a mutual wish to help others learn vocal harmony. Together the two created a 3-CD set of beginning, intermediate, and advanced lessons that teach any singer how to sing harmony in the privacy of your kitchen, office…or car. The lessons are called Carmony: Learn to Sing Harmony While You Drive.
